  1. Jake could not imagine a person and audio tapes for him it is just too complicated.


    On the contrary, it would be easier for him to create an imaginary monster who's responsible for his wife's death, and then have him wander in some sort of personal purgatory as punishment, stuck in a perpetual state of un-death, rather than face the fact that he does not understand why his wife comitted suicide.


    For the record, I'm not saying that's what happened, but don't discard the possibility of Angelo being a demon made up by Jake's mind.

  2. If you get caught by him, what happens is that you basically get a very intimate close up of him yelling "I'm sawwrry" (as he usually does), and then you wake up again. Fun fact: if he catches up to you while you're holding a flare, it will set him on fire during the close up. Kind of disturbing.


    Personally, I don't believe the house is real. I mean, of course it exists, but Jake isn't really there, it's all in his head.

  3. Hmm, I didn't have any crows around when I found that letter. I think it's just an interesting coincidence.



    So, I'm on the chapter 1 house, I've done the well thing, I've read all the diary pages, completed all the dreams, collected all the keys (obviously), yet I keep hearing about "Where do I use the pliers" and stuff like that. I've wondered around and I can't find anything. Do I have to finish Chapter 1 before the rest of the stuff shows up?


    Go back inside, everything should be fairly obvious from there.


    If for some reason the events do not trigger (it happened to me), return to the hidden passageway so that you get the "what the hell?" message again, then return to the well to get the message regarding the fact that lid is sealed and there is nobody there. Then go back inside.

  4. Difficulty: normal 

    Thought of changing it to hard mid-playthrough, but I decided not to; that way I will have a different experience next time I play the game.

    Time: about 20 hours-ish, counting with the prologue. Two six-hour sessions and two four-hour ones. All of them started after 11 PM.

    Trophies: everything but the hermit picture (and I was looking so hard for that last card for the crossbow quest) and the metal gear (I suck at stealth, I'll just admit it). Hostage situation was resolved by "incapacitating" the suspect; he shot me first, that gives me a legal right as a SWAT officer to defend myself.

    Total Cards: 49

    Preferred weapons:

    1 - Baton 2 - Silenced SOCOM 3 - MP5A3 (red dot sight) 4 - "Lucy" 5 - G36K


    I played the original release version (I survived the endless hordes).

    Scenario 5: Raito/Takeo had already helped Ben and Terrance escape the Facility before heading to help Jake and Bryan, the remaining MP's were unsuccessful in containing the Facility which is why the city is swarmed, unfortunately the Hermit was left behind and would probably be the only one still breathing in the facility.

    Scenario 6: Raito/Takeo had already helped Ben and Terrance escape the Facility before heading to help Jake and Bryan, the remaining MP's were successful in Securing the Facility but despite this the outbreak still spread to the City.


    That's a good point, if they are still alive, then Raito probably has helped them escape already. We should take into account that many hours have passed since Jake was taken into that interrogation room, Raito had plenty of time to go back to the facility to help them out.

  6. Could the memories of the A.R.C be the memories of the old Jake. You know the one before our current Jake clone.


    If that's the case, then perhaps the original Jake ("Guilt"?) broke out of his tank and killed everyone, that's what we saw in the prologue, a memory. If that's so, then what really happened to SWAT Jake in the gas room in the prologue was the whole Takeo/Raito saves Mia scenario.


    They were trying to fix something, find a cure for the infection perhaps; Jake had a different reaction to the gas in Chapter 1, he did not go berserk, as such, SWAT Jake (the supposed clone) must be immune to the gas/infection. They succeeded! This would also explain why he was the only prisoner in the prison block to not become a zombie.


    Some things still don't add up though, if he's a clone, then which Jake met Bryan and the others? When did that happen?

  7. -I felt really bad for Junior and Bryan, which is good, because it got me very motivated to kick Igor's ass.

    -Bryan is alive, if you look to your right when you escape the interrogation room, you'll see the door of the next room fly open and Bryan will make a break for the stairs. (I'll try to get a screenshot)

    -I do believe Terry and Ben are still alive somewhere, the facility did not blow up, that was just a mental projection of Jake's representing a stress release or something (I can't remember Michael's explanation), so they were sucessful in their task. Besides, with Ben's technical knowledge and Terry's experience, how could they possibly fail?


    Spoiler if you haven't finished the house completely:

    -I haven't connected all the dots yet, so don't quote me on this, but from what we have learned in the last dream, Jake has been to both facilities at some point, and he wasn't supposed to have been to A.R.C., he wasn't actually taken to the A.R.C. at the start of chapter 1, he was sitting on a chair hipnotized, and they forced him to describe events that happened in the U.D.R.C. (the mall), but he knew about the A.R.C. and projected his memories on that place instead. Personally, I believe that his memories of being gassed in the A.R.C. are actually his memories of being gassed in the U.D.R.C; notice how it all starts when Jake goes after Mia (a character who is mentioned by a worker at the U.D.R.C.) in the elevator hall, and then, when we are done with all that crazyness, we're back to the same place where it all started, right on time for the big escape. I think Jake never left the elevator hall, he waited for Terry and co. to arrive, but that's where his memories split. But then there's the issue of how they found him... the officer says he was shot in the head by a sniper... That's not what happened at the end of the prologue. So there's something fishy going on.

  8. I'm actually looking for those pliers, I've read that they are in the attic and I need a key, and a clock is somehow involved (?) but I checked the dining room clock and I couldn't do a whole lot with it. Any hints?


    Also, I think I'm almost finished with the chapter 1 version of the house, will there be some sort of indication that I've done everything? Or should I just keep pressing tab until there is nothing left to do?


    Edit: oh, and Loki, you should explore the backyard more thoroughly...


    Edit 2: ok, nevermind, for some reason a certain event where the clock opens up didn't trigger properly. Now I've got it.
